There are a total of 10 different ways of getting out in Cricket. They are:
1. BOWLED:
If the bowler’s delivery hits the stumps and bails get dislodged from the top of the stumps, the batsman is out. This is one of the most common dismissals in the game of cricket.
2. CAUGHT
This is the most basic style of getting a wicket – when a batsman hits a legal delivery and it is caught by a fielder inside the rope.
3. STUMPED:
If the batsman steps out of the crease to play the ball, leaving no part of himself or the bat behind the crease and the wicket-keeper is able to dislodge the bails from the wicket with the ball in his hands, the batsman is out.
4. LEG BEFORE WICKET (LBW):
If the ball strikes any part of the batsman and in umpire’s judgement if the point of impact is within line with the batsman’s stumps and the bowler’s stumps while the batsman is playing the ball, then the batsman is out. The batsman can also be given out LBW if the ball strikes him outside the off stump, if the ball would have hit the stumps and the batsman didn’t attempt a stroke.
5. RUN-OUT
If the fielder uses the ball to dislodge the bails from the either side of the stumps while the batsmen are running from one end to another end, then the batsmen is out.
6. HIT WICKET:
If the batsman dislodges the stumps with his own body or bat during the case of taking a run or hitting a shot, the batsman is out.
7. HIT THE BALL TWICE:
If the batsman hits the ball twice, he is out. The first hit is when the ball has struck the batsman or his bat and the second hit, if intentional, whether it is from bat, foot or anything, batsman is out. Till now, no batsman in cricket has been out in this fashion.
8. OBSTRUCTING THE FIELD:
If the batsman by actions obstructs a fielder, then he is out. A batsman is given out obstructing the field if he deliberately hits the ball that the fielder throws to the wicket-keeper.
9. TIMED-OUT:
If a new batsman takes more than 3 minutes to cross the boundary for coming to the crease in ODI cricket and in T20s it’s just 120 seconds then the batsman is out.
10. HANDLED THE BALL:
If the batsman touches the ball with his hand, not in contact with the bat, without the approval of the fielder, the batsman is out if the fielding team appeals.
